With great respect and genuine affection, I humbly announce that I will retire at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. There is much work still left to do this year and I ask that all join in making this semester one of the best in the eighty-year history of our school.
I express my deep gratitude to the Richland County School District One Board of Commissioners, to my superintendents, district supervisors, and all who have allowed me to be part of this mission. To all of the amazing staff with whom I have been honored to serve, I offer my highest praise and eternal appreciation.
While I look forward eagerly to dedicating myself more fully to my family and friends who have given me so much support through the years and to seeking new ways to serve, I know that I shall miss all my Blue Devils and the countless families, community members, and colleagues who have been such a part of this incredible journey.
I have truly been blessed and will keep you in my heart. I am excited about the future of our school and will always remain your biggest fan. To all my students, past and present, thank you for the joy that you have given to my life. Remember:
